    @killbillrules because people did not know the bad habits of cigarette smoke until the late 70’s genius

    Lucy almost divorced Desi in 1944 and 1949; one reason “I LOVE LUCY’ was specificially created was so that they could stay [and work] together. By 1959, however, he was too busy running Desilu (and seeing other women), while she was busy trying to keep from being lonely…the marriage simply unraveled in March 1960. They remained friends, however, right up until his death in 1986.

    Yes, you could always tell that she loved Desi, heart and soul. I’m always happy to hear how they remained friends after they divorced. Lucy seemed very practical, and to her the divorce was a necessity for her and her kids’ survival and happiness, but she seemed protective of Desi’s problems that he couldn’t be strong enough to overcome. I’m glad she came to realize they were his demons, and not something that was her doing, as occurs in some abusive relationships.

  7. Jibbie49 says:

    @terlos07 She was born in 1911, married him in 1940 and divorced him in 1960 at age 49. He was 6 yrs younger than her. She was SO beautiful.

  8. rachelazw says:

    @Jibbie49 , she turned 48 in August 1959. She and Desi filed for divorce seven months later, in March 1960, and two months after that it became final. She didn’t turn 49 until 3 months after the divorce became final.

  22. Fluttercry says:

    @killbillrules That’s really dumb. Lucille Ball would be like 99. a lot of nonsmokers die by the time they are 99.
